LEXINGTON, Ky. – A hotly contested race for U.S. Senate, Kentucky's 6th Congressional District, and Lexington mayor are just three of several elected offices voters will make decisions about on Nov. 2. Fayette County Clerk Elections Coordinator Kitty Ware has this advice for citizens heading to the polls.
"They need to go early in the morning. They need to have some type of identification and be prepared for some lines, because it is a very long ballot. And just be patient and enjoy their experience."
More than 1,300 election officers will work the polls across Fayette County. Precincts will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
"In terms of turn out, we're looking right at 50 percent, is what we're expecting. That's a little bit more than usual. This same election four years ago we had a 47 percent turnout, and there seems to be quite an interest in this particular election," says Ware.
